RedYoshi999 commented on Launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask N...:

Has anyone ever thought that it's scalpers buying from scalpers on eBay? The ones selling it now are looking for a quick buck whereas the ones buying it now are in for the long haul, sitting on it while it grows in value. Of course there's your desperate fans too.



RedYoshi999 commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

I think numbered scores are still useful, although a 10 point scale is a little restrictive. I'd much prefer a 100 point scale or at least using half numbers on the 10 point scale. NintendoLife's reviews tend to be very long, and I don't always have the time to read them, especially if I'm not that interested in the game, so yes I often read the conclusion and the score. I'm not really a fan of GameXplain's new review system, because it doesn't seem like they have a consistent set of 'emotions' and it's hard to determine which ones are better than others. (does 'liked' mean its really worth your time? I can say I liked a 6/10 game but there are plenty of others worth buying beforehand.)



RedYoshi999 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

There are 3 3DS Zelda games all deserving of 10's, not just because they're Zelda games, but because they're amazing games. While I've replayed Ocarina of Time so many times already, it's still an enjoyable game (in fact I'm currently playing Master Quest 3D) which is a testament to its quality. ALBW was also an amazing experience, and that's coming from someone who didn't like ALTTP one bit. And Majora's Mask is my favourite game of all time, so it's always worthy of a 10 in my book.

Considering development has been on and off since OOT3D released in 2011, and the original game was made in a year, I don't think Nintendo's resources were wasted one bit. We definitely would not have seen a new game come out in place of MM3D next week. If you want to argue about a remake that isn't really necessary, then Xenoblade Chronicles 3D would be a much better bet, along with DKCR3D (or any Wii game really.)

Can't wait for next Sunday to pick up my limited edition 3DS XL and special edition copy of the game! All my dreams have come true at last haha.



RedYoshi999 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@Achoo My issue isn't really with the fact you can play them on Wii mode (though it's hardly desirable), it's that there's only about 20 N64 games on the Wii Shop. There's plenty more games I've been waiting years to see. Giving us GamePad support for Wii VC would only be a stopgap solution, I want to see NEW N64 games come to the VC. That's more of a general issue though, since most of the NES/SNES releases aren't new either. The only VC I find myself buying are the GBA games since they're actually new to the service and I don't already own them.



RedYoshi999 commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

I nearly commented on the forums today when the topic popped back up again to tell people to give up already, glad I didn't now. :P Can't believe Nintendo is bothering with it after all this time. It's nice it's free but I'm still not interested in using it, especially without online features.



RedYoshi999 commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Ah thats a shame. I enjoyed Club Nintendo for what it was. Contrary to popular opinion, the Australian store has improved over the last year to the point where I didn't have enough stars to get what I wanted, when I had hoarded 20,000 stars waiting for something good. Hopefully there's a good replacement coming since the DDP ended too it's quite painful to buy digital now.



RedYoshi999 commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

EB Games Australia did it's bit by limiting pre orders to one per customer. Managed to snag one when I woke up before work. After work it was sold out! Been really lucky with these. I also snagged the special edition before it sold out.



RedYoshi999 commented on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Begins Its ...:

Can't believe its so close! I'm compelled to buy the XL system now even though I already have a regular new 3DS. Also want to buy those MM cover plates. Plus I've pre ordered the special edition. So much going on for one game!



RedYoshi999 commented on Review: Mario Party Advance (Wii U eShop / Gam...:

This was the only Mario Party game I didn't own (and couldn't because I don't have a GBA) so I'm glad to see a VC release. The lack of multiplayer will make it impossible to play with friends but at least the single player is ok. It's certainly not the worst in the series (I'm looking at you Island Tour) but I would much rather play Mario Party 3 on Wii U.



RedYoshi999 commented on Reminder: Redeem Your Nintendo Network Deluxe ...:

Finished with 9501 points after last weeks VC releases and taking the plunge on the Pikmin movies (which cost 50c less than the voucher so win-win!) All up I earned $133. Definitely an awesome promo. Will continue to buy digital too (starting with Captain Toad today)



RedYoshi999 commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

I grew up with the N64, we entered the world at the same time, so I will always remember it fondly. It has a small but classic library. Ocarina, Majora's Mask (best game ever), Mario 64, Mario Party 1-3, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, Banjo Tooie/Kazooie, DK64, Paper Mario and even Yoshi's Story are all amazing games. I still dig out Mario Party 3 occasionally as it's my favourite and Mario Kart 64 was only recently bested by MK8.



RedYoshi999 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Sold to Over Ten P...:

Its interesting looking back on last year's article and people thinking 100k sales was only alright progress when now 25k sales is the best the Wii U has seen since MK8 launched. I hope Christmas does push it a bit further this year but it seems impossible to match last year. And what is going on with those old 3DS sales? It's doubled like two weeks in a row now! Who even still wants them?



RedYoshi999 commented on 3DS System Update 9.3.0-21 Introduces a Shuffl...:

Yes, amiibo settings are in for the new 3DS. It's exactly the same as the Wii U's amiibo settings menu. Also, just like the Wii U, the amiibo functionality has been patched in before any title can use it. Hopefully it means SSB will be updated soon.



RedYoshi999 commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

I'm not sure how Nintendo Australia is going with demand, I know EB/JB have sold out but you can directly order one from Nintendo by calling them. I decided not to buy one since the price is too steep with the digital version and it only works on Smash, plus I think Gamecube controllers are overrated and I'm perfectly happy with the pro controller. But now I have the sudden urge to buy one since its becoming such a collectors item...



RedYoshi999 commented on Review: Mario Kart Super Circuit (Wii U eShop ...:

I have this from the ambassador program. It's an alright game, the controls are much harder to get used to off the back of modern Mario Karts, but I wouldn't buy it again on Wii U. The lack of multiplayer really makes it pointless to own on a console. There's nothing the Wii U adds to this game to justify actually paying for it since it was free on 3DS. That and it hasn't been released yet. :p



RedYoshi999 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Pre-Purchase and P...:

And of course Nintendo Australia fails again by not offering pre loading. Might switch over to UK eshop because 17gb is going to take forever to download launch night. Or not as that means I won't get the club Nintendo soundtrack argh!



RedYoshi999 commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 Hits on 13th November,...:

Amiibo DLC is useless for me. I hate racing as a mii so no benefits here. Can't wait for the new tracks though! Tad annoyed that SNES Rainbow Road is back again. I got very sick of playing it all the time online in MK7. And after the perfection that is N64 Rainbow Road we didn't need another one.



RedYoshi999 commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

New 3DS release d- oh wait, it's only 16 days away! (sorry gotta rub that in sometime.) There are plenty of things I could wish for, but none will probably happen so I'll keep expectations low. Plus I'm not getting up at 6am to watch.



RedYoshi999 commented on "Pre-Download" Service to Kick Off With Super ...:

Awesome! I'm a digital guy, but downloads are soooo slow in australia it took me 12 hours to download bayonetta 1&2 (so much for a 10pm release.) Will be cool to actually play it when it releases (technically the day before in my time zone.)
